I am shipping my first batch tomorrow. They completed hatching tonight, so into a small shipping box with one of the straw-like pads on the bottom. The label goes on the top, express shipping since going to CA from KY. I put some grow gel in the box and taped it shut, the postal lady will weight it I suppose and give me a shipping price and I will pray they make a speedy but quiet trip. It's not really that hard to do, just order shipping boxes, straw pads and for good measure grow gel. A heater pack is good for cold weather shipping. Now, wish me luck and good luck to you too.
